I'm really enjoying how you are taking small steps at showing the gender switch, as opposed to shoving it down our throats in sweeping exposition.

Harry, being a naturally roll-with-it type of guy on the surface, should have no trouble adapting. I wonder if his connection to Voldie is consistent... will be fun to see :)

Thanks for the story, M

Gender Switching vs. gender ROLE switching. The former, when well done, is a mentally broadening and stimulating writing technique.

The latter does not work.

As much as certain segments of the politically correct and humor impaired are offended by the fact, gender roles are not simple historical accidents. They are rooted in biological realities and necessities.

First example: sexual "aggressiveness."... or aggressiveness in general. Men aren't more aggressive than women due to some sinister plot by the patriarchy. They're more aggressive because it is a fundamental survival strategy for the species. The female bears the young, nurses them and tends to them until they are independent; consequently aggressive behavior (hunting, fighting enemy tribesmen, dominance struggles) are counterproductive, as it endangers the survival of the young and because the female is less physically capable of such endeavors (lower upper body strength, etc.) Cooperation and social bonding are better strategies for the female. The male on the other hand is larger, stronger, and is not encumbered by childbearing, so it is more sensible for him to be the aggressive risk-taker.

Likewise sexual aggressiveness. A human female gains little to no survival advantage from being sexually adventurous. Her ideal reproductive strategy is to find and maintain the interest of one male, and keep him faithful and protective towards her and her offspring.

These practicalities are rooted deep in our genes, our most deeply rooted primal instincts... and it makes for terrible writing. The only way your gender-role-flipped world would exist is if humans reproduced like seahorses.

The purpose of gender-flipped fanfic is to investigate how a male character's actions would be different with a feminine perspective, or a female character's with a male's perspective. It effectively recreates the character. A well-done example can be found in the story https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8202739/1/Weasley-Girl

Flipping gender roles, on the other hand, just gives you women with nads and men with tits.

This is an unusual story. I've read other stories where Harry finds himself with a twin but this is different again being a parralell universe story. I look forward to more. p

"If you’re good, we’ll let you raise our babies." My god, I havent laughed like that in some time.

"Oh, in my world the term was balls."

"Balls?" Veronica Weasley asked. "Why the bloody hell would balls mean courage?"


Definitely also worth noting.

Going to continue reading...
